    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Always something to do, so the time goes quickly. The other associates are, for the most part, fun to be around. Seeing the products people buy can be entertaining... Plus, it can help give ideas on what to buy.

    Cons

    Many of the members of management had "favorites" amongst the "regular" associates. So, if one of these favorites were caught doing something, like wasting time, not calling in when they're not going to able to come in, etc., it was fine. If a non-favorite was wasting time, or not spending a free second either calling to customers, or washing down the register or conveyor belt, they'd get yelled at or disciplined in some way.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the associates are working for crap pay, and know that all employees should be treated well. Don't have "favorites" that get special treatment, like more days off, overtime, or raises before people that actually deserve them. I was liked because I basically took up the slack when others couldn't come in, etc., yet the ones that were always calling in were the ones getting raises. It boggles the mind. Also, you should promote more from within, rather than hiring managers that need to be trained by non-management.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great rotational working schedule. You work three days on and off three days. Schedule just rotates. It is a 12 hour day

    Cons

    You have a shift manager and store manager above you. Communication is lacking. Responsible for your area plus your pad partner area when they are off. Not enough hours for associates so you end up staying longer. Time isn't allowed for you to work your daily routines. If you are trying to advance in management, it works if you have the look or you in the "click".
